...all mankind is of one author, and is one volume;
when one man dies, one chapter is not torn out of the book,
but translated into a better language;
and every chapter must be so translated;
God employs several translators;
some pieces are translated by age, some by sickness,
some by war, some by justice;
but God's hand is in every translation,
and his hand shall bind up all our scattered leaves again,
for that library where every book shall lie open to one another;
John Donne Meditation 14
Logan looking over his Sunday school lesson
And I saw the dead, great and small,
standing before the throne, and books were opened.
Another book was opened, which is the book of life.
The dead were judged according to what
they had done as recored in the books.
Revelation 20:12 NIV
